The pottery of Corea, though comparatively little known in England, is of quite exceptional artistic importance. It is of outstanding merit in two respects. The Corean pottery shapes, though obviously and naturally related to the Chinese, are very distinct and characteristic. In the medieval period, in particular, from about the 10th or the 11th to the 14th century, were made a body of wares unsurpassed for beauty of form. They have an easeful serenity and grace, flowing and seemingly effortless, yet never lapsing into facility or trivial prettiness.
